    IMoive clip duration
    I was transferring from analog to digital and IMovie5 would capture but stop after 19:54:06. So I kept that clip they started where it left off and it did the same thing 3 times. I unchecked in preferences start new clip with each scene or something to that effect. I have done other transfers before and this has not happened although it was with IMovie 4.

    Also with IDVD, I was burning a project and it said that it was too large although preferences had been checked to high but I clicked OK and it still burned anyway with no problem. Does IDVD look at the time of the project or the size and determines if it can burn or not. I noticed with Toast that they limit to 60 minutes. A real pain when you have a 2 hr video. How can you burn a 2 hr video then?

    Well as to your first problem:
    I've noticed the same thing importing directly from a DV cam, haven't really found a fix yet though- I just let it run and it'll start a new clip every so often???
    But it's not such a big deal for me at least.

    Cool
    I have experience the same thing in iMovie 4. I beleive there is a limit in file size that are created in iMovie. I know in iMovie 4 it create a new clip at about 9 minutes 26 seconds. Like Aptmunich stated it is no big need, just a quirk of the software.

    iDVD does do a time check, in that is make sure that you have 2 hours or less. Also is checks the size of the project to be burn to ensure that it will fit on a blank DVD.

    It did make a 9:26 clip in IMovie 4 but it didn't stop. Mine stops importing.
    I have to manually start import again.

    Check to make sure you have the Automatically start new clip at scene break under preferences checked.

    It is checked. Does anyone know if this happens in FCE?

    Cool
    I have not used Final Cut Express, but i have played with Final Cut Pro. The capturing of your data is done a little different. In that I believe that you have to log your video clip first. Then you would do a capture. I found it was easier to use iMovie to capture the footage and then import the clips into Final Cut when ever I use it.
